In an interview?!? Now, THAT would sure be interesting to read, if that's really true. Seems kind of out of character (in public, anyway), but who knows.

Interesting on Positively 4th Street. But it seems like everyone who ever crossed paths with Dylan at the time was supposedly the inspiration for that. I tend not to think that songwriters are so literal as to be thinking of One Specific Person. A phrase gets inspired by one person, another phrase by another person, then it sort of combines and grows and takes on a life of its own. Like any kind of good creative writing.

From what I've read, I gather that from Mickey's perspective Joan Baez was rather depressive. From her perspective, I have no idea -- but, well, the GD in the early 80s ... if she DID think "hell in a bucket," was she wrong, LOL?

I guess it's like Dylan believing he was the inspiration for Diamonds and Rust, only to find out from Joan that he wasn't.

" I guess it's like Dylan believing he was the inspiration for Diamonds and Rust, only to find out from Joan that he wasn't. "

Diamonds and Rust was written in 75, Positively 4th ST was 65

And Diamonds and Rust IS totally about Dylan. Not inly is it obvious but she has said so in interviews
